Nebraska Pro Hac Vice

Section 3-106 of the Nebraska Court Rules provides the rule regarding admission for attorneys licensed in other jurisdictions who are seeking pro hac vice admission.

Attorneys must be of good moral character and be admitted to and engaged in the practice of law in the courts of record of another state, the District of Columbia, or a territory. Attorneys must take the oath required by individual regularly practicing before the Nebraska Supreme Court.

Practice and Application
Attorneys are required to file a Motion with the court that the attorney is associated with a lawyer who is a resident of Nebraska. The Nebraska lawyer must be duly and regularly admitted to practice in the courts of record in Nebraska and be an attorney upon whom service may be had in all matters connected with the action. Service has the same force and effect as if personally made on the out-of-state attorney within Nebraska.

The $250 fee is paid to the Clerk of Court. If the Motion is not granted, the fee is refunded. Indigent clients may obtain a fee waiver at the court’s discretion.
